The Week Ahead for Cancer

14th Aug 2017 - 20th Aug 2017Getting down to business.  

Venus is roughly half-way through her transit of your sign, so already you may be feeling quite the flavour of the month. However, this week Venus opposes Pluto, which does not always make for in an easy passage. Aside from one or two glitches that can be quickly ironed out, if there is a deep problem at the base of a working or intimate relationship it requires tackling, so that a new start can be made.

Likewise, if an endeavour has serious flaws, far better they are faced now with a view to resolving them or abandoning ship! Cancerians can take things a little too personally sometimes, so be sure you’re not exaggerating a minor infraction.

August 2017

The Month Ahead for Cancer

 Venus aims to bring love and happiness into life and August is the month of the year for love and marriage. Just how much the rest of the planets help this joyful prospect rather depends… On or near the 15th and 24th weaknesses in a relationship will be revealed: whether you can live with them or they prove to be the last straw is up to you. But if you’ve been standing on the brink, poised to jump into the deep end, these influences will provide a push. Not only Venus but two eclipses on the axis of finance and self-worth (7th and 21st) add to the theme of now-or-never. You may receive a windfall; you could be faced with a large expense but whatever the actual scenario accept the situation with grace.

The Year Ahead for Cancer (2017)


If there has been a lesson to learn over these past few years and the Uranus-Pluto tango it has been to expect the unexpected and not to bank on the bankable. And now you are more resilient and flexible. (You are, aren’t you?) Jupiter’s passage through the fourth house of your solar chart will help you find greater stability and success in 2017, although you may not get the smoothest of rides each and every month - July is particularly volatile, yet packed with excitement too.

Home and family take the top spot with some Cancerians expanding the home base whether in terms of bricks and mortar or new family members, and you could see your finances improve by an unexpected gift or the sale of a property.

A trip overseas may come about unexpectedly early in the year or a permanent move abroad could be on the cards.

Love and relationships

Venus will be in pride of place from February through May making love a priority, whether plans are being laid down for a special event in 2017 or a partner requires support and a relationship needs work. If you are single and seeking love can be found in connection with work or with someone of power and influence.

In December Saturn will enter the zone of relationships encouraging some of you to name the day and others to suspect the party may be over. What will help you make the best of the Saturn transit to come in 2018 is to nail down problems when they first arise in a relationship.

August is the most romantic month of 2017, but Christmas Day could prove even more significant for the future of a relationship.

Work, life goals and finance

Given your need for security and your strong sense of loyalty you can stay in jobs that do not reflect your skills or provide you with the opportunities you require to grow and prosper. This is the reason behind any unanticipated job changes this year.

Ideally, you should get in the driver’s seat and push for change. Jupiter will underpin your efforts bringing success in the wake of radical moves, and you certainly have the wind in your sails from February to May. The eclipses of the year largely fall on the financial axis, so there could be surprise gains and losses, especially in March and August.

While there is always a need for caution with large scale investments, 2017 could find you purchasing a first or second home in a distant place.

Celestial Tip

If you give people enough room and a spade, they will dig their own graves. Put another way, don’t waste time trying to prove you’re right, other people will do that for you. Life is short. Too short to keep on keeping on when a project or relationship is dragging you down.

Does it really matter what people think of you? You have gifts that are going to waste and time is running out. Whether this advice applies to your career or your love life - whatever - before Saturn enters Capricorn in December you want to have at least started to get your ducks in a row.

It’s time you joined the winners’ circle.
